Oregon reports 7 more COVID-19 deaths, several from months ago; 369 new cases

MGN

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are seven newly reported COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,817, the Oregon Health Authority reported Friday while noting that several were from months ago -- even last year, due to processing delays.

OHA also reported 369 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, bringing the state total to 211,998.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Friday that 5,295 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 2,896 doses were administered on Thursday 15 and 2,399 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Thursday.

The seven-day running average is now 5,300 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 2,607,790 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,765,059 first and second doses of Moderna and 175,839 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of Friday, 2,445,717 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,271,516 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series.

Cumulative daily totals can take several days to finalize because providers have 72 hours to report doses administered and technical challenges have caused many providers to lag in their reporting. OHA has been providing technical support to vaccination sites to improve the timeliness of their data entry into the state’s ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS).

To date, 2,975,895 doses of Pfizer, 2,267,560 doses of Moderna and 299,100 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to sites across Oregon.

These data are preliminary and subject to change.

Updated vaccination data are provided on Oregon’s COVID-19 data dashboards and have been updated Friday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 141, which is four more than Thursday. There are 44 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is six more than Thursrday.

The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.

More information about hospital capacity can be found here.

St. Charles Bend reported 12 COVID-19 patients early Friday, three of whom were in the ICU, with one on a ventilator.

Cases and deaths

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported Friday are in the following counties: Benton (9), Clackamas (27), Clatsop (2), Columbia (7), Coos (4), Crook (6), Deschutes (19), Douglas (14), Hood River (1), Jackson (28), Josephine (12), Klamath (6), Lake (1), Lane (28), Lincoln (8), Linn (18), Malheur (3), Marion (28), Morrow (2), Multnomah (55), Polk (15), Tillamook (1), Umatilla (28), Union (3), Wasco (3), Washington (33) and Yamhill (8).   

Note: Five of Friday’s newly reported COVID-19 related deaths are from late 2020 and early 2021. The counting of deaths from death certificates may take time to process because they are determined by physicians and then sent to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for further review before the cause of death is ultimately determined. Once this information is confirmed, the information is reported back with a final cause of death to states. This lagging indicator is now being captured in Friday’s reporting.

Oregon’s 2,811th COVID-19 death is an 82-year-old woman from Clackamas County who tested positive on June 2 and died on June 12 at her residence. She had underlying conditions.

  1. So these numbers are roughly the same as they’ve been the whole time. Over 70% vaxxed and no real change in cases. Could be time to list how many cases are presumptive, how many are vaxxed and how many are unvaxxed. Oh and how many are Delta variant.

    1. The numbers may be roughly the same, but the population that is vulnerable (i.e. unvaccinated or partially vaccinated) is shrinking, which results in the rate of infection (# infections/unit of population) higher. Bottom line: if you’re unvaccinated, watch out.

      1. “The numbers may be roughly the same” ? After 17 months ?? Time to admit- Kalamity Kate and the Demonrats have failed miserably.

        1. I simply don’t understand, bghw, why citizens aren’t taking the perfect vaccine that the former president invented and made sure EVERYONE could get. Doesn’t that make you curious?

          1. Not really- President Trump was not given the opportunity to seal the deal. Which is FDA approval ! Why is Biden and Harris dragging their feet on this ?

  2. So happy to be fully vaccinated. I wish my 8 and 10 year old kids and my sister with Stage 4 cancer (who is undergoing gene therapy in an attempt to save her life) could get vaccinated. The intentionally unvaccinated are going to keep this **** show going for a long time. Oh well.. all in the name of FREEDUMB!

  3. Hey Barney- Why did KTVZ disable ALL commentary on your “FAST FOCUS: A False narrative of 74k extra vote in AZ ????

    Seems a lil fishy… We all know where KTVZ leans politicly lol…Not that surprising though based on where you get your news from aka CNN..

    1. We don’t disable comments on any stories, never have, never will. There are AP stories that show up in the system without comments turned on, a long-standing tech issue. Provide a link and it will be turned on.

      1. Is the comments section still bugged and removing posts? My post on this article is missing or did you manually not approve for no reason?

          1. LOL okay, my post was not offensive in the least. What a joke. Hey guys, don’t say on here that no one cares about covid tallies being reported on anymore because that is somehow deemed offensive.

            1. That’s absolutely right. Folks laughing, making light or saying “no one cares” is disrespectful to people who have passed and grieving friends and family. If you can’t be sensitive to that, we’ll have to enforce our Terms of Service for offensive posts.

              1. I’ll say this plainly because you can’t seem to separate the two. Saying “no one cares” someone died is completely different than saying no one cares it’s being tallied in a report on covid deaths. It’s completely different and the fact that you think it’s the same makes you appear very egotistical.

                1. And the fact that you think there’s a difference makes you appear very insensitive. That is a distinction without a difference – you are saying “nobody cares” in a comment on a story about a death toll. I’m not splitting hairs – you are. Feel free to go make your points somewhere else.

    2. You will have to excuse the Digi-Con-Tator… He’s got more disgruntled’s than just you- and a hacked system that he can’t get control of… Call it what you want- but it sure ain’t fishy… more like targeting- bullying- harassment ! Good Luck !

      1. NO targeting, bullying or harassment. A technical issue that thanks to a FAR kinder commenter than you, I have just identified. I have a workaround to restore comments.
        If you need me to repeat the comment I just posted to Mike Bedford, let me know.
        Any further lies/assumptions/unfair attacks, I’ll try to do the “right thing” and ignore.
        I cannot ‘fix’ your false beliefs, all I can do is present the facts, which for the vast majority is usually enough.

  4. You will have to excuse the Digi-Con-Tator… He’s got more disgruntled’s than just you- and a hacked system that he can’t get control of…

        1. I meant everything you say about Covid and other issues. You lie more than Trump, or, you really believe what you say, which is scary, because you are very uninformed.

            1. Hey, let’s talk underlying conditions. The main underlying condition killing people right now is … Trumpism. Oh, and you spout lies every day here, there isn’t enough room to lists sources, because like Trump, you lie too much.

    1. Were you not educated? Where I went to school, they taught us the difference between “where” and “were”. Then again, I’m not an Eastern Oregonian.

    1. Yes!! They are so freaking desperate to scare us, it’s crazy. NEW DEATHS April, Nov, Nov, Dec, Jan, Jan….PATHETIC TACTICS…in reality, 1 newish death.

  5. Notice how its always the MAGA Anti-vax Clowns claiming someone is trying to scare them? Its almost they are afraid and trying to convince themselves oterwise.
